Our scouts (and adults) enjoyed a winter wonderland at Mt Norris Scout Reservation in Eden,VT.  Activities included rock climbing, rile shooting, archery, tomahawks, rope braiding, and snowshoeing.  On the way home they took a tour of the Ben & Jerry's factory and sampled ice cream.  A fun time was had by all!
